InfoComm 2019: Panasonic Outlines Latest in PTZ Camera Line

Panasonic Business announced the latest addition to its PTZ camera range at InfoComm 2019, with the new AW-UE4 set to enhance the flexibility and usability of filming solutions for AV professionals.

In celebration of the ten year anniversary of Panasonic’s PTZ camera range, the AW-UE4WG/KG has been revealed as the successor to the popular AW-HE2 remote camera, offering upgraded features which include 4K resolution and an ultra-wide viewing angle of 111 degrees.

This is set to improve the flexibility of filming across a variety of applications, with corner to corner wide-angle videos improving the quality of filming, even in the most limited of installation spaces.

In addition, the camera offers a 1/2.5-type 8M pixels single sensor to capture ultra-high quality 4K 3840 x 2160 resolution images, and supports a variety of video formats with 30p/29.97p/25p.

Equally, it provides a high level of connectivity with three video output terminals of HDMI, LAN and USB connectivity, alongside RTSP/RTMP support for direct live streaming to major platforms such as YouTube. The camera can also be powered via USB cable, enabling a single cable solution for video transmission, camera control and power supply over a LAN or USB.

The compact design and high quality feature set makes this camera well suited for application in small classrooms, meeting rooms and live events.

“The AW-UE4 was designed with professional AV in mind, featuring an ultra-wide viewing angle for flexible installation in a variety of spaces,” said Andre Meterian, Director Professional Video Systems Business Unit EMEA at Panasonic. “With the addition of 4K content, high-quality connectivity, and the option to directly upload videos to live streaming services, we feel the AW-UE4 is testament to our continuous innovation that secures our market-leading position in the PTZ sector.”

The AK-UE4 is set for release in October 2019.
